Dreams Do Come True in Toronto "Acrobat" and Mark Baker

Toronto, Ontario:  U2 has always been dedicated to the fan experience. Mark Baker (@U2BROTHR) has been what some would deem a fan for many years. Even produced a movie of his experience which was entered into 2014 American Online Film Awards Festival.

Mark is a super fan, totally dedicated to the U2 experience to the point that is is a member of the tribute band known as "Acrobat"  Mark is a 39 year old Toronto teacher that had the spot light turned on him last night at the show.

Bono welcomed the boys the the stage to perform Desire.  We have reported on Mark a couple of times. To us Mark is the ultimate fan very dedicated and most of all very supportive of other fans. Mark proves that you have to believe in your dreams to achieve them , we tip our glass to him and the rest of the band "Acrobat' for a wonderful experience for rest of us. 

U2 will be in Toronto for two shows. The show had a couple of surprises, "Out Of Control" jumped back into the 2nd position. "Stuck In A Moment" and "Bad" The show ending was a bit different with "Stand By Me" which could be considered a song and part of the set list or a snip.

Venue: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON, CA July 6 2015
